At the end of your life, you will never regret not having passed one more test, not winning one more verdict or not closing one more deal. You will regret time not spent with a husband, a friend, a child or a parent. Fathers and mothers, if you have children ... they must come first. You must read to your children, you must hug your children, you must love your children. Your success as a family ... our success as a society ... depends not on what happens at the White House, but on what happens inside your house. —Barbara Bush in her commencement address to Wellesley College Graduates, 1990
